Welcome to dickblick
The Masterson Sta-Wet Painter's Pal Palette is a patented, airtight palette designed for oil and acrylic painters. It preserves the freshness of your paints for many days, saving you from having to clean your palette after every painting session.
For acrylics, use the Painter's Pal with Sta-Wet palette paper sheets and a sponge insert (both included). Moisten the sponge and lay it inside the tray, then place the palette paper on top. When the lid is open, your acrylics will have an extended open time. When the lid is snapped shut, the Painter's Pal will maintain a moist atmosphere that preserves acrylic paint amazingly well. (For best results, use only Sta-Wet brand palette paper, which is permeable, cleanable, and reusable.)
For oils, simply remove the sponge insert. You can also substitute a conventional palette paper when using oils.
Made in the USA of tough yet lightweight plastic, the Masterson Sta-Wet Painter's Pal Palette measures 1"H × 13"W × 12½"D (2.5 cm × 33 cm × 32 cm). It comes with five Sta-Wet palette paper sheets and one sponge insert. Replacement sheets and sponge inserts are also sold separately.
These plastic containers have airtight lids, and are ideal for holding water and mediums. Twenty 0.75 oz cups per package. Cups measures 1-1/2"Dia × 1"D.
Store turpentine, mediums, and solvents in these sturdy lidded containers. Ten 0.5 oz cups per package. Cups measure 1-1/2"Dia × 3/4"D.

I would buy this product again
Comments about Masterson Painter's Pal Palette:
This is the perfect size, most are too big to lug around or too small. This is perfect. The only thing is It doesn't close tight. But I knew that before I bought it
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this again, but......
from Durango, CO
I paint in acrylics and this is my second sta-wet palette.the palette seals air tight and is very good at keeping paint fresh between sessions.Finding the right amount of water to leave in the sponge when sealing can be a bit tricky, too little and the paints dry out, too much and they all run together.This is my second because the lid on the first one split at the corner after about 3 years. If I get 3 years from this one also I will be content, but it would be nice it it lasts longer.
Love this palette
from Houston, TX
I was put off by the directions of soaking the paper in boiling water before use. So I don't. I fill my bathroom sink with the hottest water I can get, put in 15 sheets of paper one at a time so water is on both sides, and soak the set of 15 sheets for 10-15 min. I spray lysol below and above the sponge, put my 15 sheets of paper on top, and don't have to do anything for about a month. I cover the palette when not in use, and give it a spray of water if I forget. Toss the top paper when you need a new one.

I absolutely love this product. It saves money in terms of the acrylic paints and not having to discard what is not used.

Excellent product if you have a busy life and need the acrylics fresh. Love the ease of use. I had a smaller size in the same product, just moved to the bigger size

I looked at several palettes before deciding on this one. I use it with Blick's 9x12 inch disposable palette paper which fits perfectly. I didn't use the little cups that came with it. I use it for oil painting to help keep my oils from drying out. Did not use the sponge that came with it.
I like saving money

This is very versatile. I use it for my oil paints, without the sponge or little side tray of cups. I put my palette paper in the large area, and the side compartment holds some of my brushes. I can also use it with my plein air set up.

I've used a Masterson Sta-wet Palette Seal for oil paining for almost 20 years and it's still going strong, but at 16x12 it's a takes too much room in my canvas bag. I wanted something smaller when traveling (I'll keep the big one at home). I bought a peel-off palette by another company and I like the easy close lid of that, but I wasn't able to peel off dried paint, especially from the multitude of little cups around the edge of it. (It would probably clean out with solvent if one NEVER allowed oil paint to go dry in it.) So I bought a Masterson Sta-wet Painter's Pal. It's 13x12 and so far I'm liking it very much. The paper liners and sponge are really designed for acrylics, but the paper is OK for oils. I'd be happy without the single row of cups for solvent and such--12x12 would be perfect--but the material is flexible and seems to be of the same high quality as my old 16x12. The 3 inch reduction in length makes a welcome difference in my carry-all. I've already recommended it to my friends in painting class.
Wonderful acrylic palette

I have used this palette for several years and am able to keep acrylics fresh for weeks, with proper maintenance. I'm able to mix color on the paper provided. This size has been useful for small to larger size paintings.
